“In honor of International Data Center Day, the Independent Data Center Alliance is proud to showcase a data center tour to viewers throughout the world. We won’t be just talking about the solutions, we will be showing our viewers how it works, what they do, why they are important, and will be able to take questions from our audience in real-time,” comments Ilissa Miller, co-founder of the Independent Data Center Alliance, CEO of iMiller Public Relations and President of NEDAS. “Due to the global pandemic, many people lost the opportunity to enter a data center. As a result, this is the closest experience we have seen to date, and welcome anyone the opportunity to take a look inside the operational intricacies required to keep our global data flowing efficiently and effectively.”

“We are thrilled to showcase the superior products that CCI represents by showcasing our demo facility in this Virtual Data Center Showroom tour,” shares Scott Cockerham, CEO of Critical Components, Inc. “Our goal is to create a visual and interactive solution in response to the lack of in-person tours so that anyone interested in data center components can see how these elements work and where they are placed to experience the products first hand. It is important to not only showcase our best in class power, mechanical and lighting solutions, but to be able to connect face to face with our customers, clients and colleagues, even virtually.”
